Formidable though they may have been, Rama's opponents in that fateful building were nothing more than small fish swimming in a pond much larger than he ever dreamed possible. And his triumph over the small fry has attracted the attention of the predators farther up the food chain. His family at risk, Rama has only one choice to protect his infant son and wife. He must go undercover to enter the criminal underworld himself.

A lot more story, personality, and panache than the first Raid movie, but the crew outdoes themselves in terms of action sequences. Prison bathroom fight, hammer-girl/batboy, and the martial arts/shoot-out/car chase sequence towards the end particularly stand out for me, even as a fan of many action movies. The Raid movies definitely make Indonesia seem like a country made out of nothing but hard surfaces, because they definitely made use of every single one in each fight scene. Must-watch for fans of action or martial arts movies, and the level of gore and the way they ramp up the tension prior to each fight also gives it almost like a horror-movie feel at certain parts.

If you saw the Indonesian movie "The Raid," you know it was one of the most insanely over the top and violent action movies in years and pretty much miles above anything America has produced. If you liked "The Raid," you'll like "The Raid 2." I won't bother with plot summary because, really, who cares? Is there tons of superviolent, awesome action? Yes, yes there is, including a muddy prison brawl, a car chase, a nightclub battle, and a showdown in a restaurant. At one point hammers are involved. Actor/martial artist Iko Uwais returns in the lead. John Woo and other HK action directors are the clear influence, but director Gareth Evans (he's Welsh) has a style of his own. If you like good action, this is awesome. If not, well, see something else. Your loss.

Great, very long, not as good as the first one. Some good characters in this one.

It's not an easy task to follow up to the break-out martial arts triumph The Raid: Redemption. There are only so many ways you can show wave after wave of mob goons getting the tar beaten out of them. The Raid 2 focuses more on plot than the first installment, a smart choice, as another marathon of ass kicking would be tiring. The result is a drawn out, but well-crafted, crime thriller that retains the soul of the franchise: dudes taking flying knees to the face.

Quentin Tarantino, eat your heart out. If you like martial arts films, put this and The Raid on your must-see list. Takes normal fight scenes to a new level in terms of creative action. Not for the squeamish, this film doesn't pull any punches.

The star of this movie were the fight and action sequences. The kitchen fight might be the best fight scene I've seen in quite a while (not for the squeamish). There were quite a number of fight and action sequences so the plot suffered a bit in order to get to those crazy fight scenes quickly. If you're a fan of manic martial arts fights here you go.

I thought that the first Raid movie was as incredible an action movie that had come along in quite sometime, but Raid 2 was probably the best action movie that I have ever seen and had some of the best fighting sequences that you could ever see on screen...two and a half hours was probably longer than it needed to be but, Raid 2 was by far, the best action movie anyone can ever see for a long, long time.

I can't top the action synopsis ''Dreamstime'' has given in their commentary and can only agree. This film has fight scenes that have left a high-water-mark that will be hard to top in relation to choreography, cinematography and sheer physicality. The art in martial-arts has never been so apparent as in some of the scenes of this film, especially in the prison wall beat-down that is an incredible percussive performance, on top of an amazing show of speed and strength. Crime/Action film fans will be blown away by what is (to me), one of the best films of this genre -EVER. The likeable star of this film is just exploding with talent. If you are one of those people who think that violence in entertainment is a driving force of violence in the real-world, rather than a reflection or harmless outlet, then this flic is not for you; as the beatdowns on display here are BRUTAL. I'm a peace-loving Vegan and I love this stuff. Your loss if you can't handle subtitles, 'cause this one tops most of Hollywood's product. The absolutely THRILLING fight-scenes actually had me holding my breath!(Particularly the small-space fights, which illustrate the talent involved here) AWESOME!!!
